Self Reflection

1)How did I feel during planning this presentation? Why did I feel this way?

I felt as if it was of great difficulty. To plan we did not have a significant amount of time. I felt as if we could have done amazingly better if more time was given. We worked in the time we had and we brought out the best we could.

2)How did I feel prior to presenting? Why did I feel this way?

Prior to presenting I was extremely anxious. I was scared. Scared of the outcome, of what people might think, If I stuttered, If my words were un-hearable or mispronounced, If I broke down. A lot went through my head prior to presentations.

3)How did I feel while I was presenting? Why did I feel this way?

I felt confident for the most part. I got up there said what I had to and sat down. I actually added a lot during my span of time. It was not until I went back to my seat that I noticed was uncontrollably shaking.

4)What did I personally do well?

I think I engaged the crowd. I go them involved so it was not such a boring lesson.

5)What did not go as desired in this presentation?

A few times I got tongue tied and that really in my opinion effected the quality.

6)On a scale from 1-10, how well do I think I understood the content? Explain.

As introduction, research was not a big thing that was needed. I needed to introduce, roughly go over everyone else’s things, and sit back down.

7) How do I think my group members perceived me? Why do I think this?

I would like to think they perceived me well. I thought I did a good job. Again that could just me wishful thinking.

8)How do I think the 8th graders perceived me? Why do I think this?

I thought they liked me. I saw some smiles in the crowd.

9)Knowing that I can only control how I act and react, if I could do this presentation again, what would I change about my actions to make it a more ideal experience?

I would have written more. Elaborated farther. It would have increased the quality of my introduction.

10) What are my strengths in groups?

Tyler: Great keynote quality

Bryan: Was absent but takes care of business.

DJ: Great Chi boaster.

Connor: Good Keynotes

11)What areas do I need improvement?

I need to improve in length of script.

12)What is the most important thing I learned about myself? Why is this so important?

I learned that I have to engage the crowd so that they may see that “Wow this is fun” It will not be a boring experience for them and then I’m happy that they are too.

13)Are there any other things that I need to express?

I liked my group as a whole.
